KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Biscuit Love is a brunch restaurant in Nashville that focuses on biscuits and traditions of the South. So, when owner Sarah Worley heard about the International Biscuit Festival, she knew she needed to be in Knoxville for the event.
“It’s our third year and it’s one of our favorite events. We’re building our life on biscuits, so biscuit festival is the place to be,” said Worley. This is the restaurant’s third year participating in the festival.
This year they’re creating an angel biscuit with peanut butter, chocolate gravy and a pretzel crunch. “Chocolate gravy is something my husband grew up with on his grandmother’s table,” said Worley. “It’s a Southern Appalachian tradition. It’s traditionally made with Hershey’s cocoa powder and milk and cream.”
Worley said her biscuit will be slightly different than the traditional version. She’s using chocolate from a local chocolate maker in Nashville.
Biscuit Love started in a food truck three years ago. They moved into a restaurant this past winter. “I love celebrating the biscuit. I mean, I love watching a beauty pageant focused on biscuits and watching friends from the industry, you know, kind of put their best foot forward,” said Worley.
